Actually Made Some Stuff
And I have become very attached to the people on the About forum. They're like old friends and we all worry about each other and are very supportive of each other. It's very worrisome when someone doesn't post for a while.
But it's all so time consuming! I finished my pieces around 3:30 and here it is 6 and I'm still promoting them. Oh well, one of these days I'll be retired, no more store, and it'll give me something to do, other than talk to myself and the dogs.
This is another of the melted silver pieces, and I soldered it onto a hammered sterling ring, added three sterling balls (they're perfectly round, the bottom one is reflecting something) and two wrapped labradorite briolettes. Antiqued with LOS.
I love these pieces and guess its because I love to be different and nobody else will ever make one the same, and they appeal to my quirky side. (Some would say "weird," I say "quirky.")
The reddish beads between the silver are carnelian.
I don't get another day off until Saturday and really need to do my October books. But maybe I can sneak an hour here or there to do something else - I really want to wire wrap some Brazilian crystals. And I don't seem to be able to work after dark - does anyone else have that problem? I can't see properly, all I want to do is eat and sleep. The joys of Canadian winter - 12 hours of dark every day and a whole population that wants to hibernate. Take care!
